Coulda let the dream killers, kill my self esteem
Or use the arrogance as a steam that power my dreams
And my ego – Kanye (Ego Remix)
I heard the Ego Remix song today and also read an article on confidence. It got me thinking…
Sometimes we get criticized for having a big ego, but why the fuck should we think less of ourselves? Like if we don’t deserve what we work for. Like if our ego doesn’t build on our confidence even after every failure.
Never feel bad or inappropriate for having a big ego or confidence. Average minds will criticize your ego and confidence while the successful will look at you and smile – because they know that is part of what it takes to keep on improving.
This does not mean it’s okay to think less of other people. You should use your ego and confidence in a way that lifts you up, but never to put other people down.
“Some call it arrogant, I call it confidence” – Beyonce
When I heard this song, it felt like it read my mind! This is how I live my life, and this is what I would like to tell my son. Love Life & Carpe Diem!
Son, don’t let it slip away
When you get older, your life will live for younger days
Think of me if ever you’re afraid
One day you’ll leave this world behind
Live a life you will remember
Go venture far beyond the shores
Don’t forsake this life of yours
I’ll guide you home no matter where you are
This song came out about two years ago, but it recently became one of my favorites. I’ve heard this song many times before, but I never really paid attention to the lyrics until recently. Once I listened and understood the message, I liked it.
This song is about a guy that is being abandoned by the love of his life. Once he gets the message and realizes that she is a woman with no feelings, he encourages her to leave immediately. He tells her to leave, not because he really wants it that way, but because he just wants to end the pain as soon as possible. He refers to her as the stone woman, a woman with no feelings.
One of my favorite quotes is “Que tengas todo lo que has deseado, y que lo buendo te recuerde a lo pasado” which translates to “I hope you have everything you have desired, and that the good moments remind you of our past”.
Que tengas todo lo que has deseado, y que lo buendo te recuerde a lo pasado
Here is something I heard today, and made me think.
Why does the dog put his head out the window knowing he would get bugs on his eyes? Answer: Because he knew the ride was going to be worth it.
Some times we take risks on something and the outcome is not completely perfect. But the final reward, the satisfaction, and the experience make it totally worth it. So let’s learn from the dog this: Take calculated risks and know that when the satisfaction of the outcome is greater than the risk, it’s so worth it!
